1.00 lb Rice, Flaked (1.0 SRM) Grain 8.70 %
0.50 lb Victory Malt (25.0 SRM) Grain 4.35 %

That's not a mash. That's porridge.

I'm going to say that you should try using malted barley instead of raw barley. And then maybe you'll have better conversion than listed:

EDIT: on second thought, knowing PBR, maye this is intentional.

beersmith puts values like that in automatically you have to go in and change em when you actually brew the recipe

There's no conversion from unmalted barley. Is that recipe a joke? or a misprint?

I'm going to say it's probably a misprint. Sorry if I came across as mean-spirited.

I have no Idea what Raw Barley is but is and I have never used it. This is a recipe I found when I typed in Pabst Blue Ribbon Clone into Google. Raw Barley has to be used for something because BeerSmith has it in its Ingredients data base. But he wanted a PBR clone So I found one just tryin to help, Sometimes people are little over critical on here.

sorry for sounding critical. That's just a strange recipe. I suppose raw barley could be used in addition to 2 or 6 row malted barley since the enzymes in those would convert the raw.

PBR is known for having quite a bit of corn adjunct. I don't know if that would be white or yellow though.

If you want to be true to the style, other than brewing it through a horse (obligatory PBR joke), you should include about 5-10% corn in your grain bill.

I would have to agree, I taste more corn than rice. try comparing to bud you'll see what I mean.

I was talking to a brew master once, and he was telling me that American light's are a more difficult style because you do not have the strong flavors that can actually cover up a brew that is not perfect. in other words, if you do a good American lager, that would be something to brag about. I personally never have because if I’m putting in the effort I’m going to brew something that satisfies my hop addiction, but kudos to you if you pull it off!

concerning the wonderful comments about Pabst...
compare a Cadillac to a Kia, the caddie will win. compare PBR to DFH 90 IIPA, DFH will win, not a fair comparison IMHO. If you take Pabst Blue Ribbon for what it is, A macro American lager you might realize that it is a great beer within it's own league. compare PBR to any other American macro... besides, it still wins awards (GABF '06 - gold in American-style lager to name one out of many)
I personally love all types of beer and PBR happens to be my favorite American macro. Yes, I keep a keg of PBR on tap (saves on wasted beer when people don’t like my DIPA) and I also collect Pabst antiques.
Just a suggestion, do a blind taste test within the same category. if you don't like this style that fine because then it's a matter of personal taste, but if you are flaming this beer because of the price tag, some stigmata or because you drank this beer when you where in college or better yet high skool, there is a really good chance you don't know what you're talking about. I on occasion have judged a person on their personal tastes based off their macro American choice. you say bud or Coors, you get my homebrew sake, you say PBR, you get the good stuff

CHEERS!!!
